Navigating Progress: Hind vs. Hind

The historical landscapes of William Hind (1833-1889) and the contemporary landscapes of his great, great, great nephew Dave Hind are separated by over one hundred years and span an extensive period in Canadian art history. Hind vs. Hind juxtaposes the paintings of these distant relatives, setting William Hind’s work from the AGH collection against a large-scale collaborative aluminum work by Dave Hind and the Aluminum Quilting Society, and an installation arising from his ongoing explorations of the landscape of his hometown of Hamilton. Produced for the exhibition, these new works are Hind`s response to his ancestor’s works, many of which, until recently, he had only encountered as small reproductions in exhibition catalogs.

The exhibition reflects on the increasing influence that William Hind’s paintings have had on Dave Hind’s recent work, as well as the many interesting and unexpected connections between the approaches and techniques that both artists employ in their work. Hind vs. Hind explores this unique familial relationship, to present an intriguing representation of the development and evolution of the landscape tradition in Canada, while offering a unique perspective on the history of the country itself. The exhibition will include a new large-scale work created through a community collaboration.
